So it’s finally happened. The UN Security Council has repeatedly ignored the plight of Christians, Yazidi’s, Kurd’s, women and children in Middle Eastern Countries, yet now they are having a special meeting with the US leading the way on the killing of homosexuals by Islamists in the Middle East. What??? Yes that’s right. First ever historic meeting on LGBT’s.
UN Council to Meet on Islamic State Gay Attacks
(Israel National News) First-ever meeting on ‘sexual minorities’ to be spearheaded by the US, Chile.
Never mind the fact that Christians from Iraq & Syria have seen slaughter in Genocidal numbers, at the hands of the Daesh. Never mind the fact that Iran is holding a Christian pastor simply for his faith. Never mind the fact that hundreds even thousands of Christians in Pakistan are burned alive, blown up, mutilated, tortured, raped and imprisoned simply for being a Christian. There is one woman awaiting a death sentence in Pakistan today for being Christian and daring to drink from a Muslim well. This they say is Blaspheme and Christians are unclean. Never mind the fact that there are thousands of Christians from Pakistan who have fled the hell of persecution to Thailand and are still discriminated against because they are Christians. And this discrimination is sanctioned by the UNHCR in their refusal to help them. Yes it is.
Never mind the Nigerian Christians, the Libyan Christians, the Egyptian Christians, the Sudanese Christians and all other areas of persecution in Africa.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD? Don’t get me wrong, I do not sanction targeting any miniority, be it homosexuals, minority muslims, or any other religious group targeted for extinction or cleansing. But this borders on the rediculous.
Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive because it might injure their pelvis. Hello! Nigeria just made a law to prevent female mutilation. A historic law. Really? There are many nations where this barbaric practice is still a law, and forced marriages for children and rape are not only tolerated but sanctioned! Hello! What is wrong with the world. And this is all the US has to worry or concern itself with. We are doomed.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it best in the Cost of Discipleship:
“The messengers of Jesus will be hated to the end of time. They will be blamed for all the division which rend cities and homes. Jesus and his disciples will be condemned on all sides for undermining family life, and for leading the nation astray. They will be called crazy fanatics and disturbers of the peace. The disciples will be sorely tempted to desert their Lord. But the end is also near, and they must hold on and persevere until it comes. Only he will be blessed who remains loyal to Jesus and his word until the end.”
